Freedom Makeup – Pro Blush & Highlight Palette in ‘Bronze and Baked’ – With swatches

The last, new, product I’ve got to show you, for today, is the ‘Pro Blush & Highlight’ palette in ‘Bronze and Baked’ – I do love blushes and highlighters but I don’t use bronzers very often. I do think, though, that this could be a lovely balance between all three that’ll help me add some colour to my face in the warmer months.

It comes packaged, really nicely, in a box with a high shine to it so you will get finger prints on it in no time at all (not ideal for photos I can tell you, haha) – The outside of the palette, itself, looks very similar which is why I am jumping straight to the inside, it’s the most important part after all.


There are 8 blushes and highlights in this palette, all in pinks and bronzer-like shades – Considering these are only £6, it’s an impressive array of products, along side a huge mirror which helps with application. You can, also, get these palettes in peach and pink tones, too. But, here we go, on to the swatches.




The first three shades in the palette are a golden highlighter along with a beautiful soft pink highlighter and then a slightly warmer pink blush/highlight. As you can see, the golden one packs a real punch; I build all of these up a little so that you can see them more easily so, obviously, if you used this lightly it’d be much much subtler than this whereas the pinks will give a much gentler look, they have more of a sheen rather than an all out glitter/shimmer.


The two centre bronzers are more of a normal powder formula, rather than baked – It’s nice that there’s a shimmery one and a matte one. Both of these might be a bit dark for me, but again I did build them up; used with a lighter hand they could be really nice. You can see that they have a fantastic amount of pigmentation, though, and the shimmer in the first shade is just amazing (I’d even be tempted to use that as an eye shadow!)


The last three shades, all baked, have that softness that you expect from a baked formula which brings us back to subtler realms again. I love all three of these, I think I could definitely make use of the first two and I could use the third if I did so very lightly. That middle one is tempting, again, as an eyeshadow, just look at it.
I really like the shades in this, they might be a little much for my lack of bronzing experience but they’re definitely something I’m looking forward to play with. I am tempted to get the peachy toned one in the future but am being good for now (which is always hard with things this pretty!)
I’d love to know what products from the range you’re interested in. I’ve got posts of the Red lipstick collection, and some other new releases which are live, now, too, And I’ve done an order for £33.50’s worth of products which I’m looking forward to sharing with you too. Definitely a good start for this, new brand, I can’t wait to see what happens next.
